Uploading paper documents to the patient chart can be a painful process. Even with athenhealth’s innovative barcode system, there are so many steps: find the patient on athenanet, add a new document, create a bar code sticker, print the sticker, scan the document, reconcile the file upload…. You know the drill.

With all these steps, you might feel like your staff are spending more time uploading documents than scheduling patients or taking vitals. What if there were a better way?

With the latest Mobius Clinic update, there is. Mobius MD just announced a new feature release: Document Uploads. With one tap you can now scan any document straight into the EMR.

How it works

Mobius Clinic is the revolutionary app that eliminates up to 90 percent of keyboarding and computer distraction from every patient visit. It turns the iPhone in your pocket into a remote control for your EMR.

Here’s how to upload a new document using Mobius Clinic:

  1. Click on a patient profile in the app
  2. Select the + next to “Documents”
  3. Choose whether to use the iPhone’s camera or a connected device
  4. Assign a document title, label and other information
  5. Press “Upload”
  6. You’re done! Find the document in the patient chart within seconds

With this initial release, Document Uploads is compatible with Fujitsu duplex scanners like the ScanSnap iX500. This is a compact, efficient and intuitive scanners that scans both sides of each page simultaneously.

Medical practices that beta tested this feature love the ScanSnap scanner. But don’t underestimate the ability to scan documents directly from your iPhone or iPad.

Scanning documents with your device camera works just like mobile check deposits offered by most banking apps, only better. The Mobius team developed a new automatic perspective de-skewing mechanism that auto-corrects even the sloppiest scans. With Mobius Clinic, you’ll have the smoothest iPhone scanning experience imaginable.

Benefits of Mobius Document Uploads

We know you’ll love Document Uploads because we’ve beta tested this new feature with practices that use Mobius Clinic.

After switching from their prior document upload workflow, these clinics haven’t looked back. At one practice in San Antonio, every department is now demanding their own ScanSnap scanner so they can use Mobius Clinic for all their document uploads.

Mobile document scanning isn’t just a more efficient way to upload referrals, consent forms, insurance cards or any other type of document. It can also help your practice ensure that patient data stays secure.

For most medical practices, scanning and uploading patient documents happens in stages, often over many hours or even a full workday. By completing this process within minutes, you can shred a sensitive document immediately after confirming that it arrived safely in the patient chart. This reduces errors and the possibility that protected health data ends up in the wrong place.
